Loosing someone is extremely painful, greatly overwhelming and unexplainable.
You hear of the person’s death and you’re so shocked that you’re rendered speechless for a while. You try to wrap your thoughts around it but it just doesn’t work in any way.
The memories of the person starts flooding in. In fact, it all begins to feel like a dream because there’s so much vagueness about it. Then the emotions begin to rush in so much that you’re left numb.
People will come around consoling you and telling you statements like, “God understands; it’s God’s plan”, “I know how you feel”, “Don’t cry, take it easy” etc. But you ask yourself “Are these words even true?, Do they really feel this way or they’re just making empty statements?”.
The will to concentrate and relax is lost. You feel you can’t get over it because a part of you has been taken away. I’m not writing this to bring back the sadness, anger and pains. I only want you to understand that these feelings are natural and that the grieving process is a long and unstable one so there are things you have to do to help yourself feel a little better.
To be continued…..
